A powerful secret to career success
by Kim Meninger - Sep, 2012
After many years, I finally had an opportunity to read Carly Fiorina’s (former Chairman & CEO of Hewlett-Packard) book, Tough Choices. One of the things that really resonated with me was her approach to each new role, initiative, or challenge that she encountered. Before rolling up her sleeves and diving in, she took the time to ask lots of questions. She made an effort to understand as much as she could from as many people as...
USING YOUR WHINE FACTOR
by Nan S. Russell - Aug, 2012
Brian's work was exceptional. Still, as his boss, I rarely offered him additional responsibilities, never thought of promoting him, or selecting him for a critical project. Why? His whine factor got in the way. He was quick to complain to anyone who'd listen how much work was on his plate, or how hard or how late he worked. His whine factor was a protective shield that insured he didn't get more work to do. However, it also...
5 Tips to working with Executive Recruiters
by Louise Garver - Aug, 2012
Are you harboring the love-hate relationship that many executives experience with recruiters? You love them when they call you about a job opportunity they are working on. And not so happy when they don’t return your calls or emails; seem aloof and uncaring. The thing to keep in mind is they are major players in the career services industry and with most major companies, they are an integral part of the hiring process. Her...
Getting Keen Career Advancements, Sideways
by Jason Stauffacher - Aug, 2012
I have a great friend, a friend of over 10 years, who just got hired in a major multinational corporation in St. Paul, Minnesota and Minneapolis, proper. It took a few years to get where he is. It’s a better business card by far and the perfect job title than he had even 4 years ago in Anoka. (I must change names to keep things matter of fact, but let’s call him Peter.) Peter was working the whole time, not looking the...
Joblessness and Long-Term Unemployment
by Georgia Adamson - Aug, 2012
The topic of joblessness and long-term unemployment is potentially huge, and I realize that one blog post will not begin to cover it all. However, a teleconference I participated in today gave me some food for thought that I believe could be useful, so I wanted to share it. What is the difference between joblessness and long-term unemployment? As you can probably figure out, these two concepts are potentially differe...
Your career path might be right under your nose!
by Hallie Crawford - Aug, 2012
I was thrilled that our Career Intensive with the Georgia Tech Alumni Association went so well last month. Working with one of the participants reminded me that sometimes the right idea for your next career path is right under your nose. Katie was going around and around in her head with different career ideas, from being a professional organizer, to working in a theater and even thinking of continuing to work in a library as...
College Students Are Missing Out on Career Planning
by Marcia Robinson - Aug, 2012
College students who don't take full advantage of their college career centers are missing out big time on the career planning advantage. In addition to finalizing course schedules, buying books and outfitting college dorms, college students should make working with the campus career center a priority this year. I always encourage college students to go back to their campuses, especially in the fall, with a career checklist. W...
Should I hire a resume writer?
by Miriam Salpeter - Aug, 2012
The other day, I saw a message from Quora in my email box. It was a question requesting my opinion: Is it worthwhile to hire a resume writer? I believe that I have written a strong resume; I have received positive feedback for my resumes clarity and content. I am also aware that most employers probably spend less than a minute actually reading a resume. I wonder if hiring someone to write my resume will make a signific...
10 Smart Tips to Impress the Boss Your First Day
by Miriam Salpeter - Aug, 2012
When you land a job finally, the important work isn't over. It's essential to do your best to impress your boss and teammates right from the start. First impressions count; your supervisor and colleagues will judge you based on how you act and what you do from the very first day. It is much easier to start off on the right foot than it is to change their perceptions later. Holly Paul, PricewaterhouseCooper's U.S. recruitin...
